Möller. Annual Report 2012 Department of Geology 2012 Reserach at the Department is carried out in Lithosphere and Paleobiosphere Sciences (page 14) and Quaternary Sciences (page 21). We have a three year Bachelor program and a two year Master program in addition to a number of evening, summer and net based courses The research education in Geobiosphere Sciences is a joint education with Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis. During 2012 there were 5 board meetings. Members of the Board are shown in Table 1. The Department is most research oriented with c. 85% of the turnover related to research Table 1. Members of the board 2012. Chairman: The Prefekt Teachers/researchers Suppliants: ● Helena A ● Johan L ● Carl A ● Helena F ● Svante B ● Dan H ● Anders S ● Ulf S Technical/administrative staff ● Gert P ● Robin G ● Pia S PhD students ● Anette Johansson ● Maria Åkesson ● Sanna Holm ● Karolina Bjärnborg Student representative ● Wictor Linders ● Nils-Olov Nilsson (faculty and externally funded, and contract based) and c. 15% related to basic education. These figures have been fairly stable over the many years despite increasing externa grants and resources for basic education. In the financial statement for 2012 (Fig. 1) basic education shows a negative result with 1,4 million SEK as anticipated, whereas faculty funded research for both Quaternary and Lithosphere and Paleobiosphere Sciences shows positive results. For basic education (GU) the agency capital after 2012 has turned negative with 285 kSEK (Fig. 2). The agency capital after 2012 for faculty funded research for both Quaternary and Lithosphere and Paleobiosphere Sciences display positive figures. External funding shows a strong and continukSEK 1500 GU Kvg Vg 21 Vg 55 ous development between 2004 and 2011 with an increase of 74% or almost 20 million SEK. (Fig. 3). This trend was broken in 2012 with a drop of almost 5 million SEK. In 2012 there were a number of successful research applications. Svante Björck, Anders Scherstén and Ulf Söderlund all received significant amounts for most thrilling projects in Swedish Research Council’s general call (Table 2). The total amount was 7.7 million SEK which is 1.7 million SEK more compared to 2011. Carl Alwmark received 1.27 million SEK in the category young researchers which on the other hand is about 6 million SEK less compared to Bgg Vg 21 kSEK Vg 55 7500 GU Kvg Vg 21 Vg 55 Bgg Vg 21 Vg 55 6500 1000 5500 4500 500 3500 0 2500 1500 -500 500 -1000 -500 -1500 -1500 Fig. 2. Only Quaternary Sciences show a more significant positive agency capital after 2012 most of which is assigned for different purposes. The very by surplus for the basic education a couple of years ago has turned negative. Fig. 1. Financial statement for 2012.

The trend of increasing external funding betweem 2004 and 2011 was broken by a drop in 2012 by 4,570 million SEK. 2011. In a special call from the Swedish Research Council for French-Swedish collaboration Svante Björck and Dan Hammar-lund were successful and receive 2,653 and 2,7 million SEK crow respectively for three years (Table 3). The outcome of applications to the Geological Survey was also successful for the Department with three approved projects, to Helena Alexandersson, Anders Scherstén and Ulf Söderlund (Table 4). From the FORMAS geoinfra-call Torleif Dahlin at Lunbd Technical university, as main applicant, with Charlotta Sparrenbom and Håkan Rosqvist as co-applicants has been granted almost 7 milion SEK for 5 years for the project Geoelectrical Imaging for Site Investigation for Urban Underground Infrastructure“. Torleif Dahlin, as main applicant, and Charlotta Sparrenbom as co-applicant has been granted 1.6 million SEK from Lund Tachnical University infrastructure for a walk TEM-equipmewnt, a new GPR-equipment and a DCIP. The application for a High Resolution LA-ICP-MS from the Science Faculty infrastructure call was unfortunately turned down but an improved application ha been submitted for the 2013 call. The extensive research activity is reflected in numerous ways. In 2012 altogether 112 papers (90 in 2011) were published (p. 33) in peer reviewed scientific journals, some of which in very prestigious journals like Science, Nature Geoscince and Plos One. This is 20% more compared to 2011. In 39 of these (43%) researchers from geology were first author. A total of 120 conference abstracts (p. 39) were submitted in 2012 with researchers from geology as first author in c. 70%. Considerable international collaboration and activities are also reflected in several other parameters. In 2012 the Department was visited by more than 35 scientists from all over the world (Table 10, p. 46). Several researchers from geology did more than 50 international travels and visits (Table 8, p. 44) and participated in 47 international conferences and workshops (Table 9, p. 47). Several field expeditions were carried out to various parts of the globe e.g. Chile, Ghana, Vietnam, Greenland and Botswana (Table 11, p. 46 ) and 1 conference/workshop was organised (Table 12, p. 48). The gender equality committee is a joint unit between Department of Geology and Department of physical Geography and Ecosystem Analysis. The committee consisted in 20121of 7 persons from both departments (Table 5). The Gender and Equality plan for 2012 the was approved by the two Department Boards. The gender- and equality committee organised in November an interactive theater performance with the group Puman/Nya Klassiska Teatern that was attended by 35-40 participants. Eleven women participated in a 1-day seminar for women in worklife - ”Kvinnor i tiden”. With the end of December 2012 my six years as head of department has come to an end. In all respects it has been very inspiring but also very intense years. I think that these years personally have been very developing and I have come to know a number of persons both within and outside the department which has been most stimulating. Of all duties that comes with this position staff related issues and problems, probably are the single task that has taken up most of my time and most of my energy. The previous head of department, Per Möller, struggled for many years with a huge negative agency 2 Annual Report 2012 Table 5. Members of the gender equality committee 2012. Table 3.

Dan Hammarlund - Storskalig klimatdynamik i Europa under de senaste 2000 åren baserat på isotopanalys av sjösediment - 2,7 milliom SEK for three years. Johanna Stadmark (researcher, geology) Hanna Alfredsson (PhD student, geology) Amelie Lindgren (student) Harry Lankrijer (teacher,Ines) Florian Saballa (TA, Ines) Filippa Karlstedt (student Ines) Emmy Heidenbladh (administrative kansli) over the last years has stabilized around 30. I think a number of reasons can explain this very encouraging development. A lot of work has been devoted to develop the bachelor and master programs by introducing a number of new courses. The labour market for students with a degree in geology has been most positive. We have a most qualified group of teachers. Of the lecturers 75% are professors all who are engaged in research. The generally open and positive attitude at the Department was reflected in e.g. the Studentbarometern which shows that students in geology are the most satisfied students at the faculty with their teachers (Table 3:2 Renehed 2011). In June 2012 our former student administrator Margaretha Kihlblom received the students Honorary Award for extraordinary services to the students . At the same occasion Hans Jeppsson was awarded the students Pedagogic Award. In the evaluation last year of the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education of all bachelor and masterprograms in geosciences in Sweden both our bachelor and our master program received the top grade - very high quality as the only university in Sweden. Another most significant and positive thing worth mentioning is that over the last six years we have built up a well functioning, very professional administrative unit jointly with our sister department Physical Geography and Ecosystem Analyses. I think we can all be very proud of our Department with top quality research and education as well as qualified administrative and technical support. The role as head of a department is most complex and complicated and requires among other things a true interest for staff and administration. I am convinced that Mikael Calner is a most competent successor and I wish him and the Department all the best for the future. Lund April 2012 capital, a problem that was more or less solved when I succeeded him in 2007. In retrospective the last six years have in most respects been a fantastic period of expansion. The department has received two KVA scholars (Raimund Muscheler and Vivi Vajda) and Daniel Conley was appointed Wallenberg scholar in 2011, all three most prestigious appointments. That money, along with several other grants, has allowed Daniel Conley to develop a strong research group in biogeochemical cycles and environmental change especially in the Baltic Sea. Other new research fields that has emerged over the last six years are e.g. palaeooceanography and marine geology, astrobiology, impact research, and molecular palaeobiology. In the RQ08 (Research Quality Assurance for the Future) evaluation most of the research group were considered oustanding. The number of teachers with permanent position has increased significantly during the last six years. Most of all the lecturers have been promoted to professors. The first female professor in geology was Charlotte Möller, appointed in 2009. Researchers, generally on short term contracts, have like PhD students increased significantly due to the increasing external grants. Basic education has seen a similar expansion as research. The number of student have doubled from just over 100 full time year student equivalents in 2007 to almost 200 in 2012. In 2007 there were 7 applicants to the geology program, a figure that Table 4.
